Setting goals that matter increases the likelihood of success. You have set goals but you are struggling to get it all done. And the problem: The goal sucks and it doesn’t light you up.

And the other problem: you try to stick it out instead of making a new decision.

There is this illusion that once we set a goal, shared it with someone, we can’t change the goal. That we must follow through with the what we said we’d do. And that if we don’t follow through we are considered flakes.
Well, let me just say that anytime a goal doesn’t light you up, that you just can’t get into the mojo of getting anything done, it needs a good looking at.

If you want to set goals that light you up, know your “why”. But not just the basic “oh because of x, y and z”. Sometimes that why can bring you to tears, and at the very least it will move you emotionally. Your goal will give you something and I am not talking materialistic something. I am talking the feeling you will receive for achieving your goal.

So, if you are in a spot where you are procrastinating, finding it hard to take another step towards your goal, take a pen and paper and write out why you want this to happen and what you will get out of this.

This is the moment where listening to your heart will matter more than listening to your mind. Listen in such a way that your heart will start to skip a beat, your belly is filled with butterflies and you are grinning from ear to ear with maybe a tear falling down your face.

If your goal doesn’t excite you just a little, it’s always a good time to reflect. And yes, you have permission to change your mind anytime you want. You don’t owe an explanation to anyone. You don’t need to justify yourself to anyone.

You just need to live your life according to your rules and that means doing things that you love and light you up.

Now there will be some aspects that may suck huge donkey balls, but if just a small part of your goal gives you the butterflies, it is still worth pursuing.
